for competitors? i mean, how important is this given the fact that so many technology companies are betting on this enormous population in china and throughout asia? >> it would be a huge loss for apple. i mean, they are already seeing subscriber share for the iphone in china go down to companies like samsung and lenovo so this would be a pretty big loss. they would have to figure something else out in the country. >> yeah. david. can you address the issue of the margins? i mean, that seems to be the single most issue, most important issue affecting the way people feel about this company. margins are compressing. they are not growing nearly what they were before. if apple comes out with an iphone mini, that's only going to hurt margins even more as it tries to establish itself in emerging markets like china. >> well, that's right. i mean, apple had the best of both worlds. they could sell a premium products at ridiculously high margins and grow faster than anyone else. that is clearly being challenged, but as i say, the stock right now after this decline over the last couple of months refle

, but what do you think the active managers are doing wrong? just lacking diversity? making the wrong bets? how come they so badly lagged the rest of the market? >> well, the essential reason for it is they lagged the market because they have to. these pools of capital and mutual funds are so huge, maybe 50%, 55% of the market, it's enormous. they can't outperform each other so they end up being average before cost and below average after cost. that's the math mettics, the rules of humble arithmetic. and those costs are higher than people expect. not only got the management fees, the operating expenses of a fund, they're explicit. some funds are highly priced. but there's also the trading cost. and the trading cost, the transaction cost, these portfolios turned over 100% a year. which is a lot to do with speculation and not very much to do with investing. >> is there no place then for -- in a person's individual portfolio for actively managed funds in your view? >> well, in reality i have to say there is no place. but there will always be managers that outperform, roughly offset by manager

, a great example. but is the u.s. in a mature spot in that regard? are you betting around the world more so than you would in the u.s.? >> this is -- it will be in the u.s., and it will be globally as well. would i say that obviously there are some markets, south korea and japan, which have traditionally led in terms of technology, but the u.s. is doing quite well in terms of technology adoption now in the wireless space. obviously a lot of operating systems are being developed here, so i think the opportunity in the united states is quite strong for that idea of this internet of everything. >> hey, paul, you're a big customer of apple. you have being made over the last six or eight weeks in that stock's performance or lack thereof amid, you know, some concerns about the company's innovation over the long term now that tim cook is running the show over there instead of steve jobs. what would you say to the concerns that apple's best days as an innovator are behind it? >> well, i mean, it's a company of awfully great people, and one guy can't make a company go from being incredibly great to
in bonds this year, our next guest says the most bullish bet may come down to one single word. housing. >> pimco's mark keisel joins us now. he was named morning star's bond fund manager of 2012 just last week. mark, good to see you. and congratulations. bob pisani only joining us. mark, let's talk about that. first, congrats on this terrific naming from morning star. why housing? what's the bond play? >> i think the bond play is that there are several companies in the housing sector that can benefit from really strong cash flow growth. housing is in the beginning stages of a multi-year expansion. we're likely to see growth of 20% to 30% growth for companies. that will lead to credit upgrades for companies. there are many companies in housing that will benefit. you want to own them on the bond side. >> mark, you had a good year. good to see you again. saw you last week out at morning star. had a great year last year. up 15% in your fund. how much more difficult is it going to be to make money in fixed income this year and beyond housing how are you going to try and do it? >> good quest
